As a follow up question:
November of 1902. Serial 161026, Any idea where that date would fall in the calibers release? I would think it’s pretty early in production.
The first Model 1894 manufactured in 32 W.S. was serial number 107731, October 5th, 1901.

A note of interest is that the rear of the 32 W.S. sight did not contact the barrel and will not leave a mark on the barrel. It is also shorter than the standard Winchester rifle sight. Standard sights with the sliding elevator will generally leave a tell tale wear mark. RDB
Yes this is currently fitted with a correct Standard sporting rifle sight with set screw and serrations on the ears. Also what appears to be a 6 notch 22a elevator.
I have a smokeless site in my parts box and wonder the wisdom of putting it on…. if my letter had stated it was shipped that way. I’d not hesitate.
